OPI: What first led you to find such an interest in the beauty industry? Was there a moment or an event that drew you into it?
Veronica: I've been interested in the beauty industry since I was a child, it’s always been second nature for me. My mother was a makeup salesperson and taught me everything she knew, including how to apply makeup on dolls. A specific event I have a fond memory of is when they gave me my first Barbie as a present, it came with a big makeup box to apply onto her. I remember spending hours and hours creating hundreds of different looks for my doll.
OPI: Living in Spain, what is the most popular trend you've seen there? Do you feel as though the trends differ from those in America?
OPI: You have such a beautiful array of work! What inspires you when creating a mani or nail art look?
OPI: Your social media presence showcases your many talents in the beauty industry. How are you building such a great following?
OPI: Are there any techniques, tips, or tricks you commonly use that you'd like to share with other nail artists?
Veronica: I think that something that represents my manicure is the cleanliness of the nail. My preference is always to work with a fine brush, thus managing to outline the edges with greater precision.
OPI: Your clean lines and intricate style is so recognizable in your manis! How did you get to this level of artistry in your craft?
Veronica: I have been doing manicures for over 24 years now and I believe that precision and mastery are acquired over years and experience.
